A starter home if there ever was one, this South Marvine Street row home is right on the border of Hawthorne and Bella Vista, a convenient situation that allows for short walks to the nearby Whole Foods, Super Fresh, dog park, and Palumbo Playground. It’s also just four blocks from the Italian Market. But its true trump card? It’s quite literally just steps from Moonstone Preschool, that vaunted toddlertopia your child might (but probably won’t?) get into.

Of course, that’s not the only family-friendly feature it has going for it. Its back yard includes a garden area with two trees and room for gas grilling, which the listing claims will “give you that suburban feel.” Additionally, the home got renovation work back in 2007 that left it with a finished basement, complete with exposed beams, ceramic tile floor, and a “closet plumbed to add a third bathroom.” The home is in move-in condition, offering new occupants all of its custom lighting fixtures and appliances, as well as Brazilian cherry wood floors, an exposed brick wall, and wiring for surround sound.

Features of note:

  • Separate dining area
  • Open kitchen with breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances
  • Two bedrooms and marble bath on second level
  • Master suite with gas fireplace and spa bathroom on third level
  • Roof deck
